OPI Gwen Stefani Collection: Push and Shove, 4 in the Morning & Love. Angel. Music. Baby.

Good morning!  I couldn't wait to share these with you!  I was very lucky to find the Gwen Stefani for OPI collection in my beauty supply store earlier this week and trust me when I say I bought them out.  And even went back 2 more times.  Anyways, this collection is pretty hot and I picked up the 3 that I thought were the most unique.  Here they are!  

This beauty is Push and Shove.  Push and Shove is a silver chrome polish.  It is pretty amazing.  It looks like foil on my nails.  I was a little worried about buying it because I have never used this type of polish before, and I know they can be unforgiving with nail ridges.  So I lightly buffed my nails first and then used the base coat provided - a mini bottle of Drop That Base.  I very carefully and slowly applied 2 thin coats of Push and Shove.  I took care to not over work the polish or go over the same place too many times.  You can lightly see the buff marks in the macro but I was still happy with the outcome.  Push and Shove is gorgeous!  So this was 2 coats and no topcoat.  

Next up is 4 in the Morning.  I think I loved this one the most of the 3 I bought.  It's an amazing black "satin" finish polish that applied like a dream.  There is a very slight silvery shimmer that makes 4 in the Morning much more interesting than just a flat black matte.  The formula and application were both spot on perfection.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.  

The other "satin" in the collection is Love. Angel. Music. Baby.  I love it for the color and the name.  It makes me think of Gwen and her L.A.M.B. collection of shoes and purses...mostly the gold tennis shoes!  The nice thing about this color is that it's not a solid gold.  It has silvery white flecks in it that give it more depth.  Love. Angel. Music. Baby. had a fabulous formula and application was really wonderful.  I used 2 coats for full opacity and no topcoat.
